    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course simply because it provides experience in speaking publicly. James is a humorous teacher who does very well at keeping your attention. He also doesn't throw you into making big speeches right away, he eases you into it. He extremely helpful and fair in his grading. Whether you are new at making speeches or just taking his course as a prerequisite, this is a very helpful course to take.

    Course highlights:

    What stuck out to me the most in this class is the importance of eye contact when making a speech. I learned that when making the speech, it is good to keep looking at the audience. I also learned how important it is to look at the speaker when you are in the audience. The speaker draws courage when he/she notices that people are paying attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is lots of homework in this class; make sure you have it done on time. It also is wise to rehearse your speech in private before you give it privately. If you choose not to rehearse, you may find yourself speaking in a very disjointed manner that is not easy to follow.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to you, mainly because the instructor was friendly and helpful. He made sure everyone understood what was required of them, while still making it a fun course. That is saying a lot, considering the fact that I dreaded this course for so long.

    Course highlights:

    As with any speech class, we learned the basic principles of public speech. Although we did learn some of the "book" type knowledge, most of it was practical and hands-on.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you complete the required reading, stay caught up on quizzes and your speech preparation, you will do great! Don't get too stressed about this class, even if you have anxiety. I did, but I quickly learned that the class was laid back and no one judged, not even a little bit. Just have fun and do your best!!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it helps with public speaking skills that will be needed in one's life. Many jobs require one to give presentations and communicate with other people for different things. Having the knowledge of public speaking can help you excel at your job and social skills.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge of what to do and not do when speaking in public. The course also gave me the practice and confidence to speak in public in front of a lot of people or big crowds. I learned how to speech formally and informally depending on what event you are speaking at and the crowd.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed at this class you have to practice every chance you get. For public speaking you must developed good speaking skills so practicing in front of people or even a mirror can help prepare you to get up in front of people and present a speech.
